Avatar m tn The incidence among age 40 to 44 would be about 7 in 100,000. For the age group of 70 to 74 it is 900 in 100,000.
Avatar f tn Its for age group but anybody can post where ever they feel comfortable posting
Avatar f tn Yes it is. But I don't think its a big deal if you post in a forum that's not for your age group. Were all in the same boat and are all here for each other.
394052 tn?1203100849 My family has a strong history of cancer. Grandmother with breast cancer at 94, mother with colon cancer at age 73, uncle lung cancer, uncle stomach cancer, aunt with colon cancer, great aunt leukemia. These are all on maternal side. Brother now with prostate cancer at age 55 and me with stage 1b clear cell ovarian cancer at age 55 (no sign of disease now). I realize with older people and cancer, the docs have always told me, well they were just old enough.
Avatar m tn Hi, i am also an 18 year old male and i have a lump on my left breast between my nipple and armpit...although there was no pain, there was a slight discomfort. the lump is totally moveable. I was at the doctors getting a check up on my throat and i mentioned it to my doctor. he checked it out and told me that it was a something on my tissue(cant remember the name), and because it was moveable, i had nothing to worry about - especially at my age.

Avatar f tn m a senior and that goes with the mileage. In your case, age 30 makes cancer very unlikely, but worth asking the question to the ENT - surely they are expert at spotting throat cancer. An Oncologist is expert at treatment, and in detecting the recurrence in people who he has treated with chemo (my wife is a close to me experience). The ENT is the right place to start I think.
Avatar f tn Suggest you visit an ear, nose, and throat specialist (OTOLARYNGOLOGIST) to get a proper opinion. Cancer is highly unlikely.
Avatar m tn My brother has had throat cancer 15 months ago. However due to the extensive radiation treatments he had he now is having problems with his jaws. Shortly after the throat cancer he developed lung cancer and is being treated with chemo by an oncologist. His teeth are bothering him for the last 3 months and his teeth are falling out as well as pieces of his jaw coming off into his mouth. He is in a lot of pain despite the medications he is on.
Avatar f tn Also, capsular invasion of chest muscle. With this diagnosis, if age 45 or older, the cancer would be stage IV; younger that 45, stage II. Is it just me, or does it seem insane that age alone can change the prognosis of my disease, especially with the metastasis (also, my tumors were large - some more than 3cm)? For the curious, I'm 37. If I were 30, then the age thing would make me fell more optimistic, but at 37, that 45 year age cut-off isn't very reassuring.
Avatar f tn To all: I mentioned OVA1 in my previous entry. It has about 90% reliability in predicting whether an ovarian mass is benign or malignant. There are quite a few false positives (important to keep in mind), but few false negatives. It is a compilation of 5 different tests, including CA125. The other tests included are more significant predictors, but the CA125 is helpful for someone going into cancer treatment to determine how well it is working.
Avatar n tn Hi There, The studies that have tried to link diet with cancer have usually involved telephone surveys or questionnaires asking a group of people with cancer about their diet over the past 20 years and comparing them to a group of people without cancer. As you can imagine, the results are dependent on how well a person remembers what they ate and in what quantities. There is always the bias of people who develop a cancer trying to find an explanation for their illness.
Avatar f tn s because I am upsessing about having mouth cancer but the point is I also got a dry throat the next day...but for 5 cigars can not being inhaled can it cause mouth cancer? I have stopped smoking them but I am really scared I know it was stupid to do but I'm scared now so I don't know if I can't mouth cancer from that...
Avatar m tn I am age 35 and I wonder if this little pain...., It goes away and comes back, but the pain is getting lower not harder, but it comes and goes, Please help? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/GERD-Acid-Reflux/Worried-about-throat-cancer/show/1116216">Worried about throat cancer!</a>.
Avatar m tn s not swollen lymphs. He was diagnosed w/ small cell cancer of the throat. A type of aggressive cancer usually associated with the lungs. Theres no way that all those years of that caustic dripping of drugs down his throat didn't contribute to this cancer. He smokes, and it seems the cancer manifested where his cells were already chemically compromised.
Avatar f tn Hi, You need to see a doctor for the same as bleeding in urine can occur due to a number of reasons and one of the important causes of painless bleeding is cancer of the urinary bladder, although this is much more common in the older age group and not in paediatric age group. Further investigations like ultrasound, CT scan, cystoscopy etc help in delineating the cause/site of bleeding. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn According to the study published in the February 2015 issue of the British Journal of Cancer, Chinese researchers compared gastric cancer rates in a group of 580 HBV-infected individuals and a control group of 580 healthy individuals of similar age and gender. People with chronic hepatitis B had gastric cancer rates that were about 49% higher than the control group. There were higher rates of gastric cancer even in patients with no family history of stomach cancer.
Avatar n tn Im really confused is this group age 25-34 or weeks pregnant?? I 1st thought was to do with how far along... then the 35+ page said was age.Im 26yrs old and 38 weeks lol is this the right forum??
Avatar n tn When used as adjuvant therapy for early-stage breast cancer, tamoxifen is generally prescribed for 5 years. The benefits of tamoxifen as a treatment for breast cancer are firmly established and far outweigh the potential risks. If you are still having doubts about this, it would be good to discuss these concerns with your doctor. This link may be of help: Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn "Age spots" are normal, yes, but so is skin cancer. Benign age spots generally don't sting. You should have it checked out - but meanwhile, look up images online for "actinic keratosis" (a common precancerous lesion), basal cell skin cancer, and squamous cell skin cancer.
